    That's 511's GPS\cellphone holder! Very convenient to attached and used as a holder for anything small from gadgets to chocolate bars! Its a standard attachement to any of my bags with molle.

    I have one of the newer ones without the hydration opening from the laptop compartment. This is annoying for me bc I have a Field pocket attached to the inner molle. If I want to use the main compartment for the bladder I have to take the field pocket out.

    Ive decided I will probably just put the bladder in the laptop compartment and run the hose out of it instead of the main compartment. Anyone use this method??

    I figured out the other day why my 34L GR2 feels so comfortable and I can't seem to get along with my 21L GR1 - I have a 17.5" neck, and the straps on the smaller pack are much closer together.

    It just will not sit right on my shoulders. So word to the wise consider this when choosing a size. I'm not sure where the 26L lands but I am guessing it's more like the 34L. Note my 34L has the old style straps but I think the spacing in the real issue.

    Well got all my crap transferred in to my GR2 over from my 5.11 C18. WOW is there is a ton more room in this thing, and while it does not quite have the organization in some ways that the 5.11 has, and I have only used it a couple of days now, though I think I have made the right choice in the upgrade!!! so far very happy with it though it carries a little different than almost any pack I have ever had being up so high on your back and the yeah the straps need some long hikes full of photo/camp gear to break them in.

    Photos soon

    That is a sweet looking pack! The Goruck pics do not do it justice.

    Got a sweet java gr1 for xmas. Can't wait to toss a sandbag in there and start running. Also, does anyone take their goruck backpacking ultralight style? That would be cool

    I think ranger green or foliage Grey with those brown Mille would be sick

    Really not digging the influx of Bullets and Ruckers with the arrowhead logo, spoils the bags completely imo. One of the cool things about the bags was the lack of visible branding, not so much any more.

    Been pondering the Orange GR1 basically since it came out and finally pulled the trigger on it a few days ago - the list of who can get discounts has changed, and now includes students, so to make it even better I got it 25% off! Course that meant I had to get *more* things to get me over the $500 free shipping.. darn :giggle:

    Only negative is shipping has changed: there's only one option for international shipping and it's quite slow. I miss the 4 days from USA to Aus!

    Yeah bedlam I agree, the logo doesn't look bad, but the pack isn't as slick as it used to and now I don't think our soldiers overseas can wear it anymore

    The new arrowhead is subdued enough that it'd be acceptable overseas.

    Variety is the spice of life. If you don't like logos, they have the GR line.
